Library Lines: 16 May 2017

Library and Information Month is in full swing at the Gunnedah Shire Library. We have displays for National Families Week and Law Week both being held from 15 – 21 May 2017.

Law Week is a nationwide initiative to promote community awareness and understanding of the law. Find Legal Answers is a free information service available for the community via their website or Tool Kit collection. The Find Legal Answers Tool Kit is a collection of up to 20 plain language books held in NSW public libraries which answer everyday questions about the law.

The Gunnedah Library has a core collection of legal works, including The Families Handbook: a Guide for Families and Friends of Prisoners, Tenants’ Rights Manual – NSW: a Practical Guide to Renting, Legal Issues for Older People, and The Law Handbook: Your Practical Guide to Law in NSW. Some of these titles are in DVD format, and some of them are ebooks that can be downloaded or consulted on line.

If you require any of these publications, or need help in accessing the information, please ask the library staff for assistance.

National Families Week is a time to celebrate with loved ones, make contact with extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. The Storytime books this week will be family themed.

National Simultaneous Storytime will be next week Wednesday, 24 May at 11.00am The Cow Tripped Over The Moon by Tony Wilson. Our Very Hungry Caterpillar will metamorphose into a cow.

So come on in to the library and discover more during Library and Information Month!
